The guy in the blue hat tells Sonoko that he's not a pervert but Sonoko thinks he's lying. So she told Ran to beat him up. Ran does as she says so she kicks but the guy in the blue hat blocks Ran's kick with his leg. He punches and Ran dodges. He kicks and Ran dodges again.

Conan thought the annex was under the renovation. Ran apologizes to Hirukawa and she says it's okay. She suggest that they should help each other when in need. Hirukawa's friends found Hirukawa and she apologizes them for keeping them waiting. While Ran, Sonoko, and Conan left, the man mentions how the person is doing. Hirukawa explain that the person was drunk and keeps shouting curses as usual. She says that after she scolded the person severely, the person started crying. Hirukawa also says the person wants to apologize to everyone and admits his sins, so the person like them to go up to his room. After that, Hirukawa suggest for her friends to take a car ride and buy a recording device to record the person's repentance.
